John Nealey Snyder

M, b. 19 January 1941, d. 2 November 1967
Adults: John Nealy and Lynda (Watkins) Snyder; Child: John Alan Snyder
Circa 1967
     John Nealey Snyder was born on 19 January 1941 in Panama City, Bay County, Florida. He was the son of Harold Malcolm Snyder and Mary Pearl Nealey. John was born and raised in Panama City; was a member of the Bay County High School's class of 1959; and joined the U. S. Air Force in 1961 on the Buddy Plan with Darrel Malloy and attended basic training at Lackland AFB, TX, before going to Lowry AFB, CO for specialty training.1 John Nealey Snyder married Lynda Watkins, daughter of Thomas Norman Watkins and Annie Olean Driggers, in 1962. John Nealey Snyder and Lynda Watkins lived in 1967 in Grand Forks Air Force Base, North Dakota. John Nealey Snyder died on 2 November 1967 at age 26 John Nealey Snyder died when the B-52D he was aboard crashed while landing at Griffis Air Force Base, Rome, NY, Nov. 2, 1967.
He was survived by his wife Lynda (Watkins) and son (John Alan); his parents, Harry [who died in 1977] and his mother Mary [she died in 1996]; two brothers, Mike (who was in USAF Intelligence at Elemendorf AFB, Alaska), and Richard (who was a senior at Troy State Teacher's College [now Troy University]); and his maternal grandmother [who died in 1968], Penelope Slay Nealey of Graceville, FL.
John was born and raised in Panama City; was a member of the Bay County High School's class of 1959; and joined the U. S. Air Force in 1961 on the Buddy Plan with Darrel Malloy and attended basic training at Lackland AFB, TX, before going to Lowry AFB, CO for specialty training. At the time of his death, he was a tail gunner in the B-52 Strafortress. Because this aircraft normally flies at an altitude of 40,000 to 60,000 feet, the seats of the crewmembers ejected downward. The airplane was landing at Griffis AFB when an in-flight emergency led to this tragic crash--none of the crew survived, and all funerals were closed casket.
B-52s had a crew of six: pilot (who flew the aircraft and was the commander of the crew/aircraft), co-pilot (who relieved the pilot as needed), navigator (who made sure that the aircraft got from point A to point B), radar navigator (the bombardier who dropped the bombs), electronic warfare officer (to jam enemy radars & surface-to-air missiles communications), and the tail gunner (who was stationed inside the tail and had a 50 caliber machine gun in case enemy aircraft tried to engage the airplane; the "gunner's nest" was moved forward after Vietnam and was removed completely in the early 90s).
Staff Sergeant Snyder was stationed at Grand Forks AFB, ND, and was filling in for another tail gunner (they had to have a full crew to fly back then, too).
The B-52 crew that John was assigned to at Grand Forks AFB was the 46th Bombardment Squadron Heavy, and Captain B. W. Cooper was the Aircraft Commander; Capt. Cooper and his wife, Sandy, visited John's parents every year on Nov. 2 for 12 years.

Died in a B-52H crash (Unit/Serial Number: 61/0030). Staff Sergeant John Nealey Snyder was the rear tail gunner.
Also killed in the accident was Maj. Robert A. Richards (pilot), Maj. Lloyd D. Lassman (radar navigator), S.Sgt. Willard F. Walker (crew chief), Sgt. Gordon S. Flick (crew chief), Capt. Joe E. Turner (EWO). Crewmen 1st Lt. William S. Fairhurst (Co-Pilot), 1st Lt. Sidney W. Glover (radar navigator) survived.

They were attached with the 319 Bomber Wing at Griffiss AFB, NY. The crash happened shortly after leaving AFB in Mass. following aircraft repair. The stated description was Asymmetric overshoot attempted following control lost during instrument approach.2,1 He was buried on 7 November 1967 at Panama City, Bay County, Florida.
